Whenever I see photo from LA or another somewhat exotic place, people in it looks so much more at ease and happy than they would in a picture taken back home. Obviously this has to do with the fact that they’re on vacation, but I feel that some of it also lies in the eyes of the beholder.
Even though the same colours and sunlight can be found in vacation pictures taken in Sweden, I think the aesthetics and the details in the photo infuses it with a sense of “alternate reality”. Everything from the sidewalks, rooftops, to the leaves on trees makes a huge difference in the perception of the picture.
As a filmmaker that tells me a lot about the importance of picking the right location to enhance any mood.
Anyway. The watermelon/rosemary lemonade was excellent.
